Outstanding apartment in the historic center of Pistoia with easy walking access to everything

  • 5 of 5
My 3 friends and I stayed in this apartment for several days and loved it! It is located on a piazza in the historic center minutes away from the Piazza del Duomo, Baptistry, numerous churches with outstanding works of art, interesting museums and many restaurants. The photos provided are an accurate reflection of the space and we loved coming "home" after a day of visiting friends and sightseeing. The apartment is spotless and comfortable. The WiFi is somewhat dependent on where you sit, but certainly very functional! The owner was very helpful and flexible as to our arrival. She was available to answer all of our questions, many of which were answered before we even asked. The Duomo is a "must" to visit, as is the Baptistry. Stroll around town and be surprised at finding unexpected treasures (outdoor fruit markets, the church of St. Andrea, that of the Madonna dell'Umilta', the Museum of Marino Marini). Enjoy dinner at La Bottegaia or buy cheese, salami, pate' and wine at Il Sapore di Bottegaia and bring it "home" and enjoy a leisurely lunch at the dining room table. Walk to the train station (15 minutes) and hop a train to Florence or Lucca. All within easy reach.

The Real Italy

  • 5 of 5
I can not say enough great things about Pistoia! I traveled to Tuscany with my husband and 8 year old son in July, 2013. We were not interested in seeing every hill town, but simply wanted to slow down and enjoy a traditional Italian community for a week; this hit the spot. It was so close to Florence; yet, felt a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. We stayed in Florence for two nights to see the main sights there, then traveled to Pistoia and slowed way down. Titti's apartment was perfect! It is right on the main piazza as advertised, no need for a car. We got up each morning, walked down the stairs to our choice of coffee bars and gathered supplies for breakfast at the produce market, bakery and butcher shop- all a stone throw away. The train station was less then a ten minute walk away, if you are inclined to do day trips to explore it couldn't be easier. Then a slow dinner in the historic town center to end the day. We stayed during July 25th, so were able to experience the annual Joust of the Bear Festival which my 8 year old absolutely LOVED!!! It was a wonderful experience, Titti was great help with my son (who decided to break his leg two weeks before our trip so was on crutches and required some extra help) and helping us reclaim our lost luggage from the airport!!! Despite these problems, we still couldn't have asked for a better trip.
